  • Summer’s heat and weather can take a toll on your flower garden. But with a little extra care, it is possible to bring it back to life for a few more weeks of vibrant color and texture.

    It’s always important to make sure annuals and perennials get plenty of water this time of year, especially in later summer.  Annuals, in particular, will start to decline without an adequate supply of water to keep the ground moist.

  • We cannot control the weather, but we can control what our tomatoes eat, so to speak. At planting time, we prepare the soil with composted hen manure and a little organic fertilizer; we also mulch around the plants immediately in order to moderate soil moisture and to prevent the spread of soil-borne diseases.   This year our work at building healthy soil has paid off because the tomatoes are thriving.  Some folks have not been as lucky as the rain poured down earlier in the season.

    Gospel Singing at Old Gospel Barn

  • For those of you that have never heard of a woman named Corrie Ten Boom and her remarkable family, it is truly a heart-breaking account of courage and sacrifice.

    We begin our story with Cornelia (nicknamed Corrie) who was born in Haarlem, Netherlands, in 1892. She was raised in a devoted Christian atmosphere and lived in a large house above her father’s business where he was a jeweler and watch maker. This loving family believed in demonstrating their spiritual convictions by offering shelter, food and help to anyone in need.

  • The Spencer County FFA Dairy Judging team representing the National FFA Organization placed second in the International Dairy Judging Contest held at the Royal Highland Show in Edinburgh, Scotland on June 26th.       This was a result of winning the National FFA competition last October.  Team members are John Brumley,  Max Dippel, Luke Williamson, and Michael Bentley. They were coached by Bland Baird.

    Knights of Columbus Chicken Dinner

  • Lately we’ve had a bit of rain and listening to people talk about the weather can be interesting. For example, if someone has to drive in the rain they may hate it.  The next person may be trying to raise a garden, and they need the rain.  A little kid may love splashing in the mud, but her mom hates cleaning up all the mud that gets tracked in.

    Different people experience the same thing different ways, we all get that.  But what about the way we react sometimes?  Think about a rainy weekend.
